Shōjō, A New Modern Asian Hot Spot, Opens in Chinatown

Shōjō is a new modern Asian spot in Chinatown.
A new modern Asian, Shōjō restaurant and lounge, quietly opened for dinner at 9A Tyler Street in Boston’s Chinatown Monday; the grand opening is marked for August 8.

The menu depends on fresh local ingredients, and offers lunch items, such as the Shōjō Burger with shiitake mushrooms, small bites served 3-6 PM and a full dinner menu in the evening. Prices range from $5 to $20. Craft cocktails and a broad selection of sakes are part of the beverage program.

The dining room has maintained an industrial feel with chic accents of reclaimed wood (used for tabletops and bar), exposed brick walls and metal cage light fixtures. The staggered height seating (high tops, communal tables, booths) allows for 47 guests. A mural on the wall shows the myth of Shōjō, the part man, part monkey, on a quest for the never-ending sake river.

The restaurant is dinner only to start and will begin lunch service in the near future. Owners and cousins Brendan Moy and Brian Moy also part of the team behind China Pearl.
